The Grants begin to be noticed in English history in the 12th 
century. Their name was possibly Le Grand, and they may have ac- 
companied William in 1066, or followed soon afterwards with the crowd 
of Normans (including a " Robert Grante ") who came to profit by the 
conquest of England. This, however, is little more than conjecture, and 
a purely Celtic origin has been claimed for the Clan. 

The name appears in Scotland in the middle of the 13th century, 
and we find Sir LAURENCE Grant, sheriff of Inverness in 1263. 

JOHN GRANT, believed to have been the son of Sir Laurence, was 
taken prisoner at the battle of Dunbar, 1296, but was liberated in 129^ 
and in 13 16 obtained a charter of the lands of Inverallan in Strathspey 
from John of Inverallan. 

Patrick Grant, of Stratherrick and Inverallan, son of John, ap- 
pears between 1345 and 1362. Possibly another son of John was Sir 
John Grant, taken prisoner at Homildon Hill, 1333, and knighted 
before 1357. 

MALCOLM GRANT, son of Patrick, is mentioned in 1394 as in pos- 
session of a twenty merkland near Inverness. ROBERT GRANT, possibly 
a son of Sir John, was sent on an embassy to France in 1389 and again 
in 1391. 

ELIZABETH Grant, Lady of Stratherrick, daughter of Malcolm, in 
1433 disposed to her grandson John Seres all her lands including Inver- 
allan. A Jul IN GRANT, who is supposed to have been a son of Robert 


and who may have been the John Grant, Sheriff of Inverness in 1434, 
married Matilda Comyn, daughter of Gilbert of Glencairnie, by whom 
he had 

Sir Duncan Grant, I. of Freuchie, knighted between 1457 and 
1464. Freuchie was a barony, and for generations after Sir Duncan's 
time was the family designation. He died in 1485 having married 
Muriel, daughter of Malcolm X. of Mackintosh, by whom he had a son 

John Grant, apparent of Freuchie, to whom in 1482, Patrick Seres, 
son of John Seres above mentioned, disponed the lands of Inverallan. 
He predeceased his father in 1484, leaving a son 

JOHN Grant, II. of Freuchie, " Am Bard Ruadh." It was under the 
Bard that the Grants first established themselves in Urquhart and Glen- 
moriston. The original barony of Urquhart, dating from the early part 
of the 14th century, and including Glenmoriston, was erected into a 
Lordship 100 years later, and had been held by the Lords of the Isles 
from 1394 to 1476. In Glenmoriston the Macdonalds for years opposed 
the Grants, and kept the lands waste. In 1482 the Bard became tenant 
of the Lordship, and in 1509 James IV. granted him a charter of a new 
Barony of Urquhart ; to his second son John, " Iain Og ", (by Margaret, 
daughter of Sir James Ogilvie of Deskford) a charter of a Barony of 
Corrimony {Grants of Corrimony, p. 11) ; and to his natural son (by a 
daughter of Stuart of Kincardine) JOHN, "Iain Mor", a charter of a 
Barony of Glenmoriston. The Bard's eldest son, James, succeeded 
him as III. of Freuchie and from him are descended the Grants 
of Grant, now Earls of Seafield. 













The Barony of Glenmoriston included the lands of Conechane, 
Craskie, Aonach, Auchlayn, Dulchreichard, Duldragyn, Innerwick, 
Blarie, Inver [moriston], Coulnakirk, and others. The grantee had to 
pay to the king a yearly feu-duty of £27 6s. 8d. Scots, to provide and 
maintain nine horsemen for royal service in time of war beyond the 
kingdom, and at the King's command to convene with all fencible 
persons dwelling on his lands. 

JOHN Grant, I. of Glenmoriston, son of John the Bard, second of 
Freuchie, also acquired, 22 July, 1532, Culcabock and other lands in the 
parish of Inverness. He died in September, 1548, having married 1st

2. Alexander, designed in Blairy in 1695. According to information supplied in 
August 1 835, by the late James Murray Grant, X 1 1, of Glenmoriston, this Alexander 
"married a Gairloch woman against the wish of all his relations, they not know- 
ing who she was, or who were her connections in Gairloch. In consequence of 
this dispute with his friends, Alexander Grant left his native place and never 
returned ; and had it not been for a song, composed by his wife, and still sung in 
the Glen, no trace of him could have been found. After Alexander left Glen- 
moriston, his friends being anxious to know something about the Gairloch 
woman, made enquiry through Sir Alexander Mackenzie, laird of Gairloch, and 
found that she was great-grand-daughter of the laird of Gairloch ; her name was 
Janet McKenzie, daughter of Thomas McKenzie of Rhu, Gairloch, son of Captain 
Alexander McKenzie, son of the [fifth] laird of Gairloch." Tradition further 


narrates that Alexander lived at first in Glenshee, and afterwards in Castleton of 
Braemar.* A son, 

(i) Duncan, settled in the Forest of Birse, obtaining a lease 01 some land 
from the Earl of Aboyne in 1722. According to the MS. Memoirs compiled 
by his descendant Mr. Charles Grant, Duncan married and had three sons : — 

i. Donald : ii. Archibald : iii. Duncan. Of these the eldest Donald, 
who fought at Cul'.oden, married and had four sons : — 

(i) Duncan : (ii) Lachlan : (iii) John : (iv) Robert. Of these

Lachlan ; a'so Donald, Alexander, and two named John, 
who all died young. Duncan became a merchant in Glasgow 
and proprietor of Clydebank and Newhall. He died in 1865, 
having married 1st Margaret Sillars, Lochill, Ayrshire (who 
died 20 August, 1831, aged 38), with issue : — 

(A) Charles of Clydebank (born 1816) compiler of the 
Memoirs referred to in the Prefatory Note. 

(B) John (born 1821) who became a Chamberlain at the 
Court of Saxe-Weimar, married in 1848 Olga Matilda 
Alexandrina von Wegner, Schloss Ostmanstedt, and 
was created a Baron by the Grand Duke. He is 
represented by an only daugruer, 

a. Olga Jane, who resides in Weimar. 

* In the Invermcriston burying ground is a tombstone bearing the following inscription : 
" Sacred to the memory of Alexander Grant, sen of John Grant., fifth laird of Glenmoriston, 
and to his spouse Janet Mackenzie, grand daughter of Captain Alexander Mackenzie of Gairloch : 
ancestors of Captain George Grant of the Indian Navy, who has erected this monument as a 
token of affection, esteem and regard, with which he cherishes their memory. They died in 
Braemar about the year of our Lord, 1730. [Erected] 1840." This Captain George Grant 
was the son of James Grant (and his wife Jane Hadden), who was the son of ii. Archibald, 
grandson of Alexander. George Grant entered the India Navy as a midshipman, 2 July, 1810, 
becoming second lieutenant 19 May, 1816, first lieutenant 29 March, 1820, commander 18 
March, 1827, and captain 18 September, 1832. He retired from the service 12 September,

3. Patrick. 

John Grant, VI. of Glenmoriston, " Iain a Chragain," was served 
heir to his father on 23 June, 1703. He fought in 1689 at Killicrankie f 
by the side of Sir Ewen Cameron, and in 171 5 at Sheriffmuir by the 
side of Alisdair Dubh, chief of Glengarry, whose life he was the means 
of saving. For taking part with the Jacobites, his estates were forfeited 
under the Act 1 Geo. I. cap. 42, and remained in possession of the 
Crown till 1732, when they were sold to Ludovic Grant, second son of 
the Laird of Grant, but then known as Ludovic Colquhoun of Luss. 

* To whose courtesy the compiler is indebted for the perusal of his brother Charles' Memoirs. 

t James Philip of Almerieclose thus describes Iain a Chragain among the followers of 
Dundee, contrasting his fidelity with the disloyalty of his kinsman, Grant of Grant, who 
followed the " Orange tyrant." 

His quoque se comitem Morisina ex valle ferebat 
Grantius egregius bello, non degener ille 
Grantiades Balli dictus de nomine castri, 
Qui Batavi partes prr^donis, et arma secutus 
Sustulit Auriaci vexilla nefanda tyranni. 
Ille sed incoctum fido qui gestat honestum 
Pectore, Cassareos Urquhartius acer in hostes. 
Magnorum usque adeo mores imitatus avorum 
Corripit arma manu, Regi inconcussus acerbis 
Temporibus laturus opem, perque invia montes 
Scandit inacessos, magnoque in bella paratus 
Arduus agmen agens graditur, quern Grantia pubes 
Ordine seryato ductorem in castra secuta est. 

— Gramtid, iv, 370-82,

* " Grant of Glenmoriston, having made a hasty march to join Charles at the head of his 
clan, rushed into the Prince's presence at Holyrood with unceremonious haste, without having 
attended to the duties of the toilet. The Prince received him kindly, but not without a hint 
that a previous interview with the barber might not have been wholly unnecessary. " It is not 
beardless boys," answered the displeased chief, " who are to do your Royal Highness's turn." 
The Chevalier took the rebuke in good part. — Scott's Notes to Waverley.
